prospects for the global economy remain weak. sounds like austerity is going bit wayside. in a statement reportedly released after the force working session today, leaders said optimism in financial markets we've been seeing has yet to translate fully into broader improvements in economic activity. they endorsed continued monetary policies from central banks that could help the recovery. now this morning the president and european leaders separately announced that they will start talks to build a big, new, transatlantic, free-trade agreement between the u.s. and the european union. one study says it would boost trade by more than $200 billion a year. the president will host the first round of talks here in washington starting next month. >> this transatlantic trade and investment partnership will be a priority of mine and my administration. it is important that we get it right. and that means resisting the temptation to downsize our ambitions or avoided tough issues just for the sake of getting a deal. >> this afternoon, president obama also met with russian presiient vladmir p
